We are trying to improve the missions and events for you basing on your feedback. I guess this feature is an interesting chance to get beautiful aircraft, especially regarding there's no time limits and you can accomplish these missions when it is comfortable for you.

How many tokens are needed to buy each plane outright (without completing any missions)?

I might give it a try to get the planes but I am looking more toward the tier 3 bi plane and pilot also good work on the hanger it looks amazing.

The Vampire is 569 tokens, the Ascender is 231...

 

It is worth noting that one of the missions for the Vampire is a Gabreski medal... one of the rarest out there... the cost to skip it is 60 tokens.

 

60 tokens = a minimum of 3 days grinding every daily objective, and allowing for epic medals... 1 token = 50 gold... that is 3000g to skip one... single... mission...

 

And pray to whatever deity you choose that you don't end up with a mission to earn 20k base exp on wins only, in each tier bracket, with specific nations...

If you have the Vampire already, do you get compensated for gold if you do the missions.

I'm hearing reports that say yes... but I'm not comfortable saying it's a sure thing.

 

Guess that settles it

Yes, you should get 12 000 gold for the Vampire if you already have it. If you face any problems with compensation after completing all missions please do not hesitate to report.

Can you confirm these are permanent missions & we have like 6mths, a year or however long it takes to complete these?

Awesome!!! :great:

 

Missions seem doable with a moderate amount of grinding.  Appropriate for the rewards.

four 50s seems a bit light on the ascender guns, but hey... i can deal with that

 

8.5 seconds for a 360 turn... isn't that in zero/spit territory?

We do not plan to switch them off. The news article says:

 complete the missions whenever you want — there is no time limit.

Thanks, that was my reading of it but the wording isn't entirely clear. (see Holy Tokens Batman thread in GD)

Can I suggest making a pinned thread in GD?

Also, what happens if I already got a Vampire and finish the mission marathon? Do I get gold equivalent? Really started wondering after I finished the XP-55 one.

Thank you!
